Engine oil sludge problem
By Eagle on


2001 Dodge Intrepid SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


The salesman pushed this car on me. Said I was getting a great deal. My Intrepid is beautiful, nice ride, and nice to drive; however, shortly after I purchased it, the water pump went. All has been downhill since then. Because access was so difficult to replace the water pump, I spent over $600 on labor. My mechanic said he has seen this problem many times with this particular car. He recommended that I get rid of it ASAP. I am so disappointed because I love everything else about the car.

Best Features

I love everything about the exterior and interior. Very roomy inside and in the trunk.

Worst Features

Perhaps a different engine with easier access for the repairs.
